Certified Organic. Eucalyptus, globulus (blue gum) is steam distilled from the leaves of the tree to produce an oil that is pale yellow in color. Its countries of origin include Australia, Tasmania, China and Brazil. Its main chemical constituents are eucalyptol (about 80%), ethyl alcohol, amyl alcohol and aromadendrene.
Eucalyptus, globulus is an antiseptic, analgesic and expectorant. It is also effective at balancing or re-equilibrating energy imbalances in individuals. As an antiseptic, it can help with infectious diseases of the respiratory system while its expectorant qualities can help with asthma, bronchitis and tuberculosis. It is also thought to be an immune booster. Avoid this oil near the nostrils of infants and young children as there is a risk of spasm of the glottis due to the cooling effect on the respiratory system. Combined with Bergamot it is used for the treatment of cold sores caused by the virus herpes simplex, and also for the blisters occurring in shingles (which are caused by the same virus as chickenpox).
